Snatcher is a Cyberpunk/Futuristic digital comic created by the prolific video game designer Hideo Kojima. The game takes place in 2047 in Neo Kobe City, fifty years after a catastrophic disaster in Moscow that released a secret biological weapon in the atmosphere, and claimed a large portion of the human population. Mysterious humanoid cyborgs called the Snatchers have started to appear regularly all over the city - although not much is known about their origins, it is clear that they are plotting to take over the world by killing their victims and stealing their identities. The player takes control of Gillian Seed, a member of the JUNKER organization that was created to eliminate the mysterious threat. However, Gillian and his wife Jaime Seed both suffer from amnesia. They were discovered in Siberia and can't recall the chain of events that led them there - but soon, the awareness of their past history reveals that they may be both connected to the recent events. Gillian is also accompanied by Metal Gear Mk.II, a small robot navigator that helps him investigate people and items, and also use a videophone to call anyone in the city. Snatcher is a traditional digital comic and features animated graphics and menu driven controls. Although the game includes a handfull of action scenes, all the text and menus are in Japanese, and a fairly good knowledge of the language is requiered to enjoy the game.
